    Personally I don't see the difference besides the fact that people hate walls of text.

    I think you're a pretty cool dude for taking the time to write something like this. I'm kind of getting sick reading the posts and sales pages with the random capitalization on 'emphasized' and 'important' words. It truthfully has effected their sales when it comes down to me giving it a shot or not.

    BUT.. Comparing it to an epidemic however, is also ridiculous. An epidemic: "is the rapid spread of infectious disease to a large number of persons in a given population within a short period of time, usually two weeks or less."

    ..It ain't no Ebola.

    I am new to purchasing content writing and what you said here I look for. What is the point in centering long content? (You can change it anyways), but point is taken.

    I have not run into this with providers yet, but thanks for pointing it out!

    I don't know man, maybe it's just me, but when the lines of a paragraph begin and end in random places it makes it infinitely harder to read... maybe it's just me though. Idk. Just thought I'd post a thread about it to see what's up.

    Or is it? :p

    If your content writer is centering the text on articles then fire them right now. XD

    Jared, you do have a point I agree with. Basically when you launch a public sales thread you are better
    off keeping it simple and not doing anything to out of place. Even though it does not bother me I am sure
    there's other people like you and they might skip over sales threads. Better to keep things standard when
    you are dealing with tons of people. :)
